Welcome to the LOSRA Website

As with any other local neighbourhood, the policies and actions which affect the character and future of Lower Sunbury are generally framed and implemented by a combination of local and national government, along with the vested interests and market forces which operate within those frameworks. Lower Sunbury is by no means unique in being under threat from a creaking infrastructure brought about by rapid urban development, the growth of traffic, and other pressures affecting the quality of life and the character of the area.

Working with the local authorities, we see it as the responsibility of residents’ and amenity groups such as LOSRA to address the underlying issues which fundamentally affect their members’ lives, as well as the minutiae of everyday life with which such groups are often concerned.

Please sign up to receive our regular e-bulletins by subscribing via the facility at the top left hand of this page. It goes without saying that, without your continued support we would cease to function so we urge you to join, or renew your membership now Subscriptions (£5 per household) for 2019 are now payable.

Eco Park Development - Latest Update

The latest Eco Park monthly update may be viewed by clicking here

If you have any feedback or questions, please address them to Louise Morton, Surrey Communications Manager, Recycling and recovery UK on: 0208 329 1049; or mobile: 07530 072 298.


O'Day, along with Mel Tormé  is often grouped with the West Coast school of jazz. Like Tormé, O'Day had some training in jazz drums (courtesy of her first husband Don Carter); her longest musical collaboration was with jazz drummer John Poole. While maintaining a central core of hard swing O'Day's skills in improvisation of rhythm and melody ranks among the pioneers of bebop.

On Sunday 15th April, Jo Harrop will be paying tribute to O’Day’s Verve years. With Jo’s music described as retro soul and a voice that’s been variously likened to dark velvet and honeyed chocolate all matched to a sunny, upbeat personality, she will make it an evening not to be missed.

Jo will be supported by Steve Rubie – sax & flute; Terence Collie – piano; Miles Danso – bass; Sophie Alloway – drums.

Venue: Riverside Arts Centre, 59 Thames Street, Sunbury, TW16 6RB

Doors 7.30pm

Entrance £12 on the door or £9 via website: www.moodindigoevents.co.uk

Police and Crime Plan Survey

The Police and Crime Commissioner for Surrey David Munro is asking for the public’s views on his proposal to refresh his Police and Crime Plan for the county.

By law, the PCC has to produce a Policing and Crime Plan which sets the strategic direction for the Force and provides the basis for how he holds the Chief Constable to account.

The PCC has decided that half way through his current four year term of office he wants to further develop his original plan and is seeking the public’s views on a new draft through a short survey that can be found here: Police and Crime Plan Survey

The plan features six revised priorities as below and the draft can be viewed here: Draft Plan

Tackling Crime and Keeping Surrey Safe

Building Confident Communities

Supporting Victims

Preventing Harm

Making Every Pound Count

A Force Fit for the Future

PCC David Munro said: “It is approaching two years since I took office and I believe now is a good time to revisit my Police and Crime Plan and refresh the six priorities within it.

“When I launched my original plan in the summer of 2016, I stated I wanted to help deliver a policing service the public can be proud of. Since then some real progress has been achieved.

“Under a stable Chief Officer team, a new policing model has been successfully embedded in Surrey allowing the police to balance demands from serious and complex crimes with the need to retain visible, local policing.

“At the same time Her Majesty’s Inspectorate for Police and Fire & Rescue Services has recognised improvements made by the Force with improved grades in recent inspections, particularly in protecting vulnerable people.

“We must never rest on our laurels however and over the next two years I want to see Surrey Police, my office and our partners build on this progress. The best plans are ones that evolve over time so I want to update my Police and Crime Plan to reflect the challenges I believe Surrey Police need to tackle in the coming months.

“We must continue to stay ahead of new crimes, crack down on emerging trends as they occur such as the current increase in burglary, support victims and keep all of Surrey’s communities safe.

“The public have a key role to play I would like as many people as possible to take a few minutes to fill in our survey, give us their views and help us continue to shape the future of policing in this county.”

The survey can be filled in here and will be open until April 9.

Last Monday we published a notice of an appeal against the Local Planning Authority’s refusal to allow a development of 7 flats on the site of Manor Farm Cottage at 126 Green Street (scroll down to 12th March).

Thanks go to all those residents whose letters of objection helped the LPA to arrive at the right decision.

Unfortunately the developer has now exercised his right to appeal the decision and the appellant’s Form dated 8th December 2017 may be accessed here.
